Last week, Albert Haynesworth was scolded by former Washington Redskins teammate Chris Cooley when Cooley called Haynesworth an awful human being, among other disparaging things.
On Wednesday, Haynesworth responded to Cooley's comments, and did so in part by saying Cooley "sounds as stupid as he looks," which are pretty harsh words, indeed.
“If the guy had any sense whatsoever: I care about the game of football. I’m not out promoting my socks, I’m not out hollering at cheerleaders and trying to marry them and get divorced in a couple years. That’s just not me. I’m out playing the game of football. You see what happened the years before at Tennessee and what I was about. You don’t get runner-up two years in a row of Defensive Player of the Year, or being in the top five of MVP of the NFL, by just trying to get released. That doesn’t make any sense. He sounds as stupid as he looks. Maybe he should worry about his own personal life and worry about what his wife is doing and all that stuff – or maybe now I should say what his ex-wife was doing.”
Haynesworth didn't stop there, though. The 32-year-old also addressed Cooley's claim that the defensive lineman was trying to get released on purpose.
“Well, maybe that’s why his nose is so big, because he keeps lying,” Haynesworth posited. “Why in the world would you play with a guy that says oh yeah, I want to get released. I don’t know. I’ve never heard any player ever say anything like that. For that to ever come out of my mouth? As much as it frickin was nothing like Tennessee there, I still tried to play, I still practiced hard, I still played hard, because I’ve got respect for myself. I’m not gonna let any man beat me on the field, or say they beat Albert Haynesworth on the field."
There you have it, folks. Haynesworth is not a happy camper.
